Lady of the English, the epic new novel from prize-winning historical romance writer Elizabeth Chadwick, is published today. A novel of beauty, power, duty, destiny and desire, set in the highly-charged world of the medieval monarchy, it tells the story of Empress Matilda, a strong and determined woman struggling to win back the crown from her cousin, Stephen de Blois, the usurper king, and take her rightful place as the Queen of England.
Despite her struggles, the real Empress Matilda lived in a world that glittered. In fact, author Elizabeth Chadwick’s research shows that the Empress was particularly fond of fine jewellery and clothing and died a very wealthy woman.
